What, regenerate your eggs? Regenerating your eggs sounds almost sci-fi although it may be a real possibility and perhaps sooner than we think.

We’ve all been told women have been born with all the eggs they will ever have, however this doesn’t seem to be true. It now appears women may be able to regenerate their eggs. Jonathan Tilly, a professor in the Department of Obstetetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School, headed a team of researchers who published a paper showing that the ovaries of women of reproductive age contain stem cells that give rise to what seems to be mature oocytes/eggs.

How exciting is this finding!
